Winter Miles and Treadmill Trials

After a harsh snap of winter last week that saw my face literally freeze and fall off my head, I’m happy to be waking up to some balmier weather for this week. There is nothing that gets inside my head faster than frigid winter weather. I don’t mind snow, I don’t mind if it gets colder but when you freeze and can’t warm up and the roads are sheets of ice and you’re trying to cart kids around…no thanks. So my sincerest apologies to anyone and everyone that my grumpiness may have affected (none of whom likely read this blog). Read More …

My Personal Thoughts on Polar’s New M200 Running Watch

Disclaimer: I’m a 2016 Polar Ambassador and as such have received an M200 to review and no cost. All opinions are my own. So I’ve been using the new Polar M200 for a few weeks now. I’ve already given you a rundown of some of the features of the watch here, so now it’s time for my own thoughts. First and foremost, the M200 is a running watch. It has integrated GPS, wrist-based heart rate monitoring and gives you display options during your run so that you have easy access to the data that is most important to you on Read More …

Running Toward: Zip, Zilch, Nadda

I don’t know where time is going but I’m in shock that tomorrow is November already. This fall has been nothing, if not crazy. In spite of the busyness of our every day, I’ve had quite a bit of writer’s block lately. I don’t have a single thing to write about. Even though we have lots going on, none of it is really worthy of writing about. We do swimming lessons, skating lessons, I work out, I work, the kids are endlessly sick (curse you germs!). I guess I don’t see the value in writing about every minute detail of Read More …

bRUNching it with Lululemon

Last weekend, I participated in a fun 5k event here in town. Lululemon put on their first annual bRUNch run. I literally stumbled onto it randomly and it seemed like fun. And hey, it was only $20 (practically free as far as race registrations go) and promised some potentially decent swag. ¬†Budget friendly and free stuff? Yes please! It was not the nicest of days and after some hemming and hawing, I decided that running it was probably not the smartest thing to do. My knee has been in rough shape since Swamp Donkey last month. Remembering back to last Read More …

Life These Days…

Taking a few quiet moments this morning. My coffee is warm(ish) and the kids are all home from school today. We’re heading into another busy weekend of gatherings, lessons and general day-to-day togetherness. I don’t know about you, but I need a few moments in the morning to myself to gear myself up for the day. So naturally, that means my kids are watching a few too many episodes of Peppa Pig while I stare with tired, glazed over eyes out the window and literally watch winter rolling toward us. I own parenting today. So what’s new with me these Read More …
